Bumpdate: 35 Weeks, from bedJune 18, 2014
(oh yeah, I copied that pic on Pinterest, so sue me)
How Far Along: 35 weeks, 1 day!
Size Of Babe: well over 6lbs by now, we'll get exact measurements on Thursday. I never thought I'd be thrilled to have a big baby, but his weight and development will hopefully keep him out of the NICU so I'm incredibly grateful for the linebacker in my belly.
Gender: all boy
Symptoms: I guess at this point, the only symptom that really matters is if I'm contracting or not...and I still am, especially towards the end of my med cycle. Some days are worse than others but he's still in there and not out here, so we can call it all a win at this point.
Loving: the World Cup, actually. It's really nice to have something new constantly on in the background. And let's be honest, a majority of these soccer players are amazingly hot and have tendencies to take their shirts off. No complaints here!
Loathing: the unknown. I hate knowing that I could make it to 36 weeks and then stop the meds only to not go into full labor. That would seriously be insult to injury seeing as this kid has tried to make his appearance multiple times in the last 7 days.
Husband: is working hard, trying to save all of his vacation for the babe's arrival, especially now that we're almost positive that we'll have a C Section. I miss him during the day but I'm glad that we aren't hanging out in the hospital as our quality time. Husband also has a birthday coming up! Sadly, I'll still be on bed rest so I'm having a tough time deciding what to do, but I want him to know his 29th birthday is still super important to me (despite all of this baby business) so I'm brainstorming away.
Wedding Rings: ya'll know the answer to this
Belly Button: is still flat and is surprisingly not an outtie
Movement: yes, but his breech position makes things a bit weird. He's been getting the hiccups at 4am every morning which makes me giggle.
Maternity Clothes: I basically only wear pj's these days so it's mostly non-maternity clothes
Best Part of the Week: making it out of week 34 and into week 35! Only 6 more days of meds!
Worst Part of the Week: eh, bed rest blows
Missing Most: freeeeeedom!
(said in my best Braveheart voice)
Can't Wait: for our baby boy to get here (after 36 weeks, 1 day of course!). I can't wait to see what he looks like...Justin and I have such different coloring and features, I can't even imagine who this babe will favor.
